I'll Be Back!

Considering the lack of new posts or comments from me for the whole of last week, you probably saw this coming. This blog(and bbreviews) is going on hiatus for a short while. Not sure right now of when I'll be able to come back but my guess is that it'll be atleast a month.

You can't do this to us, Balaji :) Your blog is one of the first few sites that I (and I am sure every BBThots reader) go to the first thing in the morning. Hope everything is well and wish you come back sooner than your scheduled break time :)

I know how filbert feels. I have been addicted to bbreviews then bbthots. I guess these kinds of breaks are needed. Sambharmafia and Lazygeek have both gone on a long hiatus as well. Hmm..makes you wonder.

Anyhow, hope to read some good posts in the future.

Nonsense!I've better work to do than uselessly arguing here.Anyway,I regret wasting my time arguing with some frogs in the well.That does not mean that I admit that what I've said here are all false facts.They're 100% true. Problem is that i've written them in a wrong place.
By the way,some of them are even official facts,(Like this-http://www.iffigoa.org/iffi2007/28oct_nov4.pdf),which are more reliable than empty rhetoric poured by someone staying in London.

S. Ganesh, not to be rude, but calling me a frog, doesn't do anything.......without arguing let's get to the point....anyway....


TO KEEP FOLKS ENTERTAINED DURING THE ABSENCE OF BALAJI / 'Pudhu Mappilai' RAM / and SANDHYA (?).

I'll give you bloggers a small trivia quiz!

1) Which famous producer's son began a prestigious project with the Isai Puyal as a technician almost two years back, with the son of a prominent actor/director playing the lead role. Please name all THREE (Producer/Director/Hero) for one mark.

2) Which Tamil-language actor was first approached for Shah Rukh Khan's role in 'Swades' only to be laughed off by the producer?

3) Which prominent actor was Mani Ratnam's first choice for the ruffian role of 'Inbasekhar' in Aayitha Ezhuthu'?

4) During the last 20 years, which playback singer achieved a National Award for his first professional Indian song?

5) Apart from Dasavatharam, which film is Kamal Haasan's daughter Shruti set to sing in?

Results will be out soon!

 
At 10:07 PM, Anonymous Anonymous said...

1)Producer is Kalaipuli S. Thanu
Director is his son Kalaprabhu
And the hero id Bhagyraj's son Santanu.
And for a bonus point the movie is Sakkara Katti :)
2)I I think Madhavan was the tamil actor offered the lead role for swades, but that was when aamir khan was producing. Howvwe when aamir left, it wasnt going to be a big budget film anymore so madhavan didnt do it.
3)No idea...vikram??
4) Shankar Mahadevan for Kandukondain Kandukondain?
5) i know she did hey ram before...and now she is doin surya's vaaranam aayiram

Yenna Prin, ennai pidichukiteenga?.. I went on vacation for one week (last week!)..

Ok, since we are playing this game.. some easy, some difficult.. have fun! :-) ;-)

1) Mr. Samyuktha Verma & Mr. Shailaja played the villain and the hero in this 2005 film. Name them and the film!

2) Name the two Ms.Reddy's debut films in Tamil Cinema. Give both the titles and the years of release. (Hopefully, you know the two actresses who carry the last name "Reddy")

3) Of the 5 heroines in "Naan Avanillai," name the one that is married and the 6th one who figured in the last scene of the film.

4) This actress has the unique distinction of sharing the screen with Rajini, Kamal, Ajith & Vijay. Name her!

5) This dance master choreographed a famous song in a 1995 Super Star film.. He used the lyrics of that song for his villain routine in this 1996 film. Name the dance master, the song, the super star film and the name of the film in which he did his villain routine?

6) Sun TV anchor Fathima Honeydew married this music director not too long ago. Can you name him?

7) This Bharathiraja discovery is now settled and running Anjali School of Bharatanatyam in Northern California. Provide the two name changes that this artist went through and his/her last Tamil film and the year of release (trick question!)

8) It was once rumoured that Simran was going out with this actor who played a terrorist in a 2001 Prasanth starrer. Can you name this actor and the 2001 film? (Clue: He was highly praised for his role in Vijaykanth's "Kallazhagar" and no surprise that he figured in Simran's "Kovilpatti Veeralakshmi")

9) This actress has acted in only one tamil film and that too in the Ajit, Director Saran, Bharadwaj combination. You can still catch her on the occasional advts. on TV.

10) This Sakthi Masala girl has yet to make a mark in tamil cinema. Maybe her heroes, Ravi Krishna & S.J.Suryah are the real problem!

If you are talking about "Kaadhala, Kaadhala," I could probably claim that she didn't act as his heroine or in an item number with him.. that eliminates her!

 
At 3:30 PM, Anonymous Prin said...

:)........Vandutanya Vandutannyaaa :)...Well Done to Bharath for my quiz thing. Let me have a go at this ...

1) Biju Menon and Vikram - Majaa!

2) Shriya Reddy - Samurai 2002 (item number)
- Thimiru 2006 (full appearance)
:S Dunno Reddy No2

3) Married: Jyothirmayi
Sixth: Tejashree

4) Meena (Muthu/Avvai Shanughi/Anande Poongatre/Shahjahan)

5).......:S

6).......:S

7).......:S

8) Sonu Sood of Majunu ??

9) Manu of Kaadhal Mannan - I thot she got married to Saran :S

10) Tamanna :)

 
At 4:12 PM, Anonymous Anonymous said...

well, Rambha did "share the screen" with Kamal in Kaadhala Kaadhala and pretended to be his wife for half the movie and featured in the "Saravana Bhava" song :)

2. Apart from Shriya Reddy, there's Keerthi Reddy. I think Devathai or some other Nasser-directed film was her first one.

Sandya,

For 7 it is Sukanya? (Northern California nnu vera solreenga) ;) if it is, not a huge fan to keep her name changes though.

Last film was with S.Ve.Shekar (or his son), anyway it must be Father or son or both (Vegam 2007). Not sure abt the release, both positive it had S.Ve.Shekar (who had long running affair with her!)

number 4 could be jothika too
although she wasnt opposite of rajini in chandramuhki she technically was the heroine of it, she was in thenali and VV with kamal, mugavari and raja with ajit, and kushi and thirumalai with vijay

Bharath

 
At 12:39 AM, Anonymous Anonymous said...

and it could be argued that rajini and jothika were together in chandramuhki in the lakalaka song bc rajini was portrayed as her husband...it is a stretch, but arguable :) :)

Srivatsan, illai No. 7 is not Sukanya. You are right up to an extent.. Sukanya did get married to a software engineer in California, but that resulted in divorce over 3+ years ago. So, no chance of her settling down in Calif. and starting a dance school. Also, Sun TV's Anandham would not have happened if Suk hadn't gone back to India. Clue: this is an early 80s heroine that we are talking about and not a very successful at that! :-)

Bharath, vandhuteengaLaa neengalum! :-).. Anyways, Jo was portrayed only as a courtesan in love with Vineeth that the King Vettayan did not like. I don't think anything was ever said in Chandramukhi, indicating that Rajini was married to Jo in the flashback. Sorry Sir, I can't buy into this! :-) ;-)

Illai, Kumar.. en thappu illai.. Rambha-ve dhaan-nu karpoora adichchu saththiyam paninaa maadhiri irundhadhu!.. so, Rambha fan pola irukku-nu naan ninaichen. ;-) ;-)

 
At 11:52 PM, Blogger Srivatsan Sridharan said...

Sandya,

the other ones in 80s could be counted

Radha, Rekha, or even (Rathi, I think B'raja introduced her). The only other one I can remember is female in *Nizhalgal* forgot her name though Rohini?.

If thats rekha, it must be Amirdham (2005)?, this is getting
wierd :)

No clue.

 
At 10:39 AM, Anonymous Sandya said...

Srivatsan, idhukku mele unga mudi-ya pichikka vaikka maatten!.. It is indeed Rohini (Nizhalgal), who later became Radhu in "Oruvar Vaazhum Aalayam" in 1988 (which was her last film!). I saw her in person a while back at a movie theater, but that was quite a few years ago.

Now she runs Anjali Dance School in the Bay Area in what is probably her original name: Radica Giri.

 
At 2:19 PM, Anonymous Sandya said...

Here are the answers to all of the questions:

1) Biju Menon, Vikram, Majaa
2) Shreya Reddy (Samurai: 2002)/Keerthi Reddy (Nandhini:1997)
3) Jyothirmayi, Tejashree
4) Meena
5) Dance Master Tharunkumar, Thillana Thillana, Muthu, Parambarai
6) Vijay Antony
7) Rohini, Radhu, Oruvar Vaazhum Aalayam (1988), Radica Giri (current name)
8) Sonu Sood, Majnu
9) Maanu
10) Tamanna

At 9:50 AM, Anonymous Sandya said...

Arun, it very well could be, but the only catch was, she got married to Sumesh Menon, just a couple of weeks before the release of "Naan Avanillai".. you could probably make a case for it.. sure! :-) ;-)..

I guess if I had said "the only actress who was already married during the shooting of "Naan Avanillai" or some such thing, it would've been less ambiguous?

 
At 7:20 AM, Anonymous Prin said...

3rd Quiz! Thanks to Sandhya for taking the 2nd one under her control!

1) 'Darling' has opened to rave reviews in Bollywood, the film is being remade in Tamil. Who plays Fardeen Khan's, Isha Koppikar's and Esha Deol's roles in the Tamil version. Name all three.

2) Vikram has recently announced a forthcoming film with Boopathy Pandian titled, 'Raja Vesham', who was signed up for it previously only to reject it laterwards?

4) The current fab four are Shriya, Asin, Trisha and Nayanthara. Name the the three actors, including their forthcoming films, who would have starred opposite these four come 2009.

5) Swapnakoodu - a Malayalam film was dubbed into Tamil in 2006 starring Meera Jasmine, Bhavana, Prithviraj, Laila, Kunchako Boban and Jayasurya (of Vasool Raja fame). The dubbed title was the same as a legendary film in Tamil cinema. Name the dubbed title.

6) 'Popular' actor J. K. Rithesh has signed up for three films, with the names of classic old films!! (Ayo!) What are the names of these three films?

And which heroine, has starred with Ajith and Vijay, rejected a role in 'Santosh Subramaniam'?

10) Finally, Karishma Kapoor starred in an item number in 1998 for a Tamil film that never saw the light of day. Name the film and the hero!

Hey Prin.. good one.. here are my answers/guesses..

1) Is this Leelai?.. Madhavan, Sadha and Shamitha Shetty (in the order of roles that you have mentioned!)

2) Boopathi Pandian has been in the news a lot lately.. my guess is as good as anybody's.. I'll say either Naren, Jayam Ravi or Simbu.. They do too many aaL changes in tamil cinema nowadays..

3) Sunil Shetty - 12B, Suman Shetty - Jayam :-) ;-)

4) I'll stick with Bharath's answers.. They all look right to me! :-)

5)

6) Romba kashtam.. (would that be one of the names?! :-) ;-)

7)

8) I'm guessing that this is Oru Kalooriyin Kadhai..

9a) Was it Jayaram?
b) Either Shreya or Nayanthara.. I don't remember Trisha or Asin being considered for the role at all!

10) This was the easiest of the lot: Koteeswaran and the hero was Ebi Kunjumon (Producer K.T.Kunjumon's son!).. 1995 to 2000 trivia-la ennai adichukka mudiyaadhu, Prin! :-) ;-).. Golden years of tamil cinema (in my opinion! :-)..

At 6:20 PM, Anonymous ram said...

i am taking the easy way out first! SPB has composed music for a few films...and, has acted in films directed by KB, Ananthu and Vasanth.

MSV was a regular actor for a few years starting with '98 when he appeared in kadhal mannan and kadhala kadhala.

ilayaraja has appeared in a few movies like "dharma pathini" (singing "naan thedum sevvanthi poovidhu"), "pudhu pudhu arthangall" and "irattai vaal kuruvi" but those are all movies where he appeared as himself; didnt really act...

 
At 9:31 PM, Anonymous Sandya said...

Actually, Ram, I think you have the right answer. SPB also acted in "Sigaram" by KB and "Thiruda Thiruda" by Maniratnam. Don't know if he ever acted under Balu Mahendra & Bharathiraja's direction.. can't recall.

Ram, so good to have you back! :-):-).. Welcome back, pudhu maappillai..

At 1:02 PM, Blogger prakash said...

I guess 2 days left atleast for bb's return. Already missing him, because I just returned after watching "Satham Podathey".

Decent 1st half. Absolutely, horribly pathetic 2nd half. Ram, no offense meant, but Vasanth has totally lost it! Last time I swore so badly at a director, it was Bharathiraja after 'Taj Mahal'. That should give you an idea how much I hated this one

btw, my last "2 days left atleast" wasn't based on any inside info. Just going by bb's last post.

 
At 1:20 PM, Anonymous Prin said...

I feel bored. 10 more questions to enlighten BB Thoters, before his majesty's return. 95-2002 quiz aimed at Sandya...lol!

1) Which two Bollywood stars excluding the lead two actresses make appearances in a film that Ajith played a parallel lead role?

2) Which blockbuster film did Ajith amd Abbas both reject, before it made a disappearing star a top hero again?

3) When Robot was first announced by Shankar, who were entitled to play the lead pair?

4) Who was the heroine in Kamal Haasan's delayed Marudhanayagam? (An extra point for Ram, if he had asked Kamal anything about the film during their meeting?)

5) Who was the lead pair in Sundar C's unreleased film, 'Kaadhal Solla Vandhen'?

6) Hard One: Amarkalam's smash hit song, 'Satham Illadha Thanimai Ketten' had 79 lines of poetic lyrics. However it was all hand picked by SPB. How much lines in total did Vairamuthu write?

7) A film titled 'Aaruvathu Sinam' has been announced recently as Myshkin's new film starring Narain and Prasanna. A film, in 1999 was announced with the same title. Which comedian-director was set to direct it?

8) What was Vinu Chakravarthy's 600th film?

9) Lawrence Raghavendra starred in Parthale Paravasam as a dancer. The role was originally supposed to be of a singer and the actor was supposed to be someone else. Nowadays this actor acts in B grade films. Who is he?

10) The role of Rajkiran in Nandha, was offered to another actor first. However due to unchangable circumstances this was not possible. Who was the other actor?

I'll be dissapointed if you don't get over 5. And please don't answer in bits and pieces. Answer all 10, if you don't know them, leave blanks :)

I know you all are looking forward to BB's return. But if you noticed he really didn't mention the reason for this hiatus and the last thing we should be doing is natchu arichchu-fying in his blog asking him to come back... We don't know under what circumstance, good or bad, that he has taken a break. We should be patient instead. Anyways, that's my 2 cents on it! :-) ;-)..

Prin, indha vaaram quiz-kku ellaam time illai pa!.. Overwhelmed-naa bayangara overwhelmed with work.. but en aasai ennai eppO vidum!..

1) Pooja Batra & Dino Morea in Kandukondaen Kandukondaen (Aishwarya Rai & Tabu would be the lead heroines!).. (Paravaaillai, romba kashta padaama kandu pidichchitten! :-)

2)My guess is "Kaakha Kaakha".. but it baffles me how Gautham thought 'god foresaken' Abbas would actually fit this role.. (finally, Surya came into the picture!).. The other film, I thought of was "Nandha".. again with Surya in the lead.

3)Kamalahassan & Preity Zinta (konjam cheat pannitten, Prin.. mannichudunga! :-)

4)Madhuri Dixit?

5)Karthik-Isha Gopikar

6)Somewhere between 100 and 500 :-) ;-)

7)Manivannan

8)Arunachalam?

9)Prin, can you give a better clue, please?.. B-grade padaththula nadikkaravaa niraiya pEr irukkaa.. How do we know which one fits this bill?

10)Raghuvaran, Naseer or Saravanan.. not really sure which one!

Okay Balaji,
your own hiatus was a minimum of a month... time's up.
:)

Where are you?
I miss reading your insights and I'm positive I'm not the only one.

Sandhya, we were just asking when, not passing theories on why BB is not back or why he is off or stressing that he should come back. Moreover it is a month now, so timing of question is appropriate.
